The former legislator joined the ruling party at a rally attended by Deputy President William Ruto in Budalangi on Monday.

In attendance were former Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba former Westlands MP Fred Gumo and Arthur Odera (Teso North).

Otuoma contested for the Busia gubernatorial seat but lost to incumbent Sospeter Ojaamong.

He vied on an independent ticket after being trounced at the ODM party primaries by Ojaamong.

He now joins a long list of former elected leaders in the former Western province who have joined Jubilee to campaign for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election.
